    Grienke leaves KC Spring Training?

    I saw where Grienke left KC's Spring Training for undisclosed reasons. Anyone heard anything else about this?

    ROYALS: Zack Greinke left the team Sunday, and there are no indications when he might return.

    Club officials said Greinke had gone back to his home in Orlando, Fla. The 22-year-old right-hander was 5-17 with a 5.80 ERA in 33 starts last season.

    "He's gone home for personal matters," Royals manager Buddy Bell said. "That's all I can say about it. He's just got permission to go home and take care of a few things."

    I've heard he has demanded a trade to the Reds.

    I hope this isn't similar to Josh Hamilton but as I recall this is how the issues first came to light with him.

    Do the minors have a different type of drug testing than the majors do? I really dont know this one, but I sure hope it isnt the same type of situation, as I have been a big fan of Greinke for a while.

    The only difference I know of is that the minors have had random drug testing for a long time, it is recent in the majors.

    OK, thanks for that one flyer. I would think if he were in the same boat as Hamilton then, that he would have failed a test somewhere along the lines... I guess we will all find out eventually...

    Speculation is that he's lost his confidence and had a falling out of sorts with Bell ...

    seems most talented rush job pitchers lose their confidence and either wash out, or find it again around age 30...or the arms are destroyed in the rush.

    That's a funny board. This post in paricular made me blow filtered water out of my nose:

    "well, if that is the case and Greinke is being a baby. We MAY want to consider trading him. Greinke would reel in Kearns or Wily Mo Pena straight up."

    The sacry thing is, were DanO still in control, he very well MAY have.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
